This pretty and sophisticated two piece beaded velvet dress set is a 1950s party perfect classic.
It’s made of a deep black rayon crushed velvet with jet black beading all over the short capped sleeve top.
The neckline is surrounded with beading, and there are larger stones dangling from smaller beads which provides a lot of movement and attention!
The narrow skirt is set on to an acetate under-slip top and zips up the back with a metal zipper, so there are no tummies showing when reaching. This has a slim (some would call it a "wiggle") skirt - for the skinny thighed.
